Taylor Swift recently began her long-awaited, contentious “The Eras” tour in Glendale, Arizona, and many fans have praised her set design and visuals. Anna Marie Tendler recently shared a video of herself calling out the pop star for impersonating her, but she later revealed the truth.
According to Page Six, after posting a video of herself reacting to the singer’s performance of “Tolerate It,” John Mulaney’s ex-wife received negative feedback from fans.
The video, later removed from TikTok, showed the “Paper Rings” singer setting up a dinner table on stage while wearing a yellow gown.
Tendler’s reaction was later stitched with a photo behind her that she claimed was taken by herself and that Swift copied from her.
“Taylor my girl, people who designed Taylor’s tour, this tolerated setup looks strikingly like one of my photographs in tone and aesthetics,”
She went on to say that it didn’t feel like parallel thinking because she’s a small and independent artist trying to make a living and survive through her artworks.
Tendler ended the video by asking for help before displaying a screenshot of the $5,000 fine art print for sale on her website.
After being called out by fans, the multimedia artist retracted her original video, claiming it was a joke.
“When I realized it wasn’t landing as a joke I deleted it… Didn’t mean offense,”
Anna Marie Tendler’s TikTok account was private as of this writing.
Despite the fact that the 35-year-old clarified that she was not serious with the video, fans continue to criticize her on Twitter, with one fan writing:
“She said it’s a joke…but where’s the joke….???????”
Another one wrote:
“I want to believe this is satire but it rly doesn’t read that way,”
Taylor Swift just finished a two-night stand at Statefarm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, and her setlist surprised many.
The musician allegedly performed over 40 songs in nearly four hours. From the beginning of her career to her most recent release, she performed most of her classic hits.
“The Eras Tour” will continue on March 24 and 25 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, with surprise guests including beabadoobee and GAYLE.
